Bible Law Puts Gov. Under Gun

Holy Bible

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has until April 19th to decide the fate of a controversial law that designates the bible as Tennessee’s official book. According to law, Haslam must sign the bill, Veto it. Or allow it to become law without his signature by that deadline. The Bible was narrowly passes by the senate last month despite opposition by Haslam, LT. Gov. Ron Ramsey and Senate leadership. Most believe the measure clearly violates both the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions concerning establishment of religion. Several groups have promised to make a court challenge if the Legislation becomes law. In 6 years Haslam has only vetoed only 4 bills.
